Cuomo Book Plunges to #28,113 on Amazon Best Sellers List

October 28, 2014

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is running for re-election next Tuesday. And while he is likely to be successful in his effort, his new autobiography, "All Things Possible," continues its downward spiral.

Last week we reported its ranking on, the world's largest seller of books online, dropped from #3526, when it first came out, to #11,578.

As of press time this week, it plunged to #28,113. Reportedly, only 945 books were sold worldwide the first week. This does not augur well for Harper Collins, Cuomo's publisher who paid him a $700,000 advance. In order to earn back the advance, the book would have to sell 255,474 copies at its list price of $18.33, if Cuomo is getting standard author's royalties of 15 percent.

Cuomo, acknowledging sales have been flat, says that, after his re-election, he will promote the book.

On Amazon, of 584 reader reviews, 547 have been one star (the lowest) rating. Last week we published excerpts, and while the book continues to plummet, the reviews keep getting worse. Here are some more:

** Not nearly long enough! It only lasted two days in the bathroom. The paper was too slick, just like the governor!

** Why is there a shaved monkey on the cover?

**Makes a great Christmas gift for insomniacs.

**This is a wonderful book. The pages seem to stay warm all the time and this is great for outhouse use during those cold months.

**I love this book. It is just the right thickness to stand upon so I can reach the upper shelves in the kitchen.

**Fantastic book! I found it while looking in the Health & Personal Care department between the Cottonelle and Angel Soft!

**Only way to improve the book would be a 1000 sheet, 2-ply edition

**You know, I bought this book because the cover art convinced me it was going to be the next big vampire novel. I was shocked to discover the book was full of instruction on leeching off of your host.

**I hadn't realized that they found a way to make paper from feces

**I tried using it as kindling, toilet paper, leveling my coffee table, and to pick up my dog’s s*** . It basically was completely useless. About the only thing it was good for is the picture on the front to scare the neighbor kid.

**$18.33 seems an awful lot to pay for toilet paper. If his face was printed on each sheet... I mean page, it would up the novelty value.
